The magic lasted only four months

The magic is gone. Holly Madison and Criss Angel are history after a four-month relationship.

The Playboy Playmate and the Luxor illusionist split sometime after Valentine’s Day, according to E! News.

Madison, a former Hooters Girl who ended up in the Playboy Mansion as Hugh Hefner‘s No. 1 girl, recently moved back in with her family, according to E!

Madison and Angel, the star of “Believe,” were seen on a romantic date on Valentine’s Day and vacationed together last month in Cabo San Lucas.

They met in Hollywood when Angel was taping the NBC show “Phenomenon” in Los Angeles in the fall of 2007. Madison and her “Girls Next Door” gal pals, Kendra and Bridget, served as assistants.

In an interview with CNN’s Larry King late last year, Madison said she and Angel continued talking while she was staying at the Mansion and began dating when she moved out.

“It was a conflict of schedules,” a source told E! News. “She felt she couldn’t devote 100 percent of her time in Vegas and his career at the expense of her career and her goals.”

Las Vegas-based publicist Steve Flynn, who repped both, confirmed they “are no longer a couple. They remain very close friends and wish each other the very best.”

THE SCENE AND HEARD

The 11th Annual Legends of Bartending World Championship are being held March 1-3 at LAX nightclub at Luxor, with an international lineup of competitors. The qualifying rounds on Monday are open to the public at no charge. Tuesday’s competition will have a cover charge. …

SIGHTINGS

At Pure nightclub (Caesars Palace) on Tuesday: NASCAR drivers Stremme, Hamlin and Hornish and comedian Kevin Hart. … Mirage headliner Terry Fator, introducing fellow ventriloquist Ronn Lucas on Tuesday during Fator’s new show.
